MWC makes offers to Nevada, Fresno St.

BYU apparently is on the verge of pulling its football program out of the Mountain West, but the conference isn't taking the possibility lying down.

The MWC confirmed previous reports that it has offered invitations to Western Athletic Conference schools Fresno State and Nevada.

After Boise State bolted the WAC for the Mountain West, the remaining WAC schools signed an agreement that it would take a $5 million buyout to leave the conference within the next five years. That could have an impact on Nevada and Fresno State's decision.
